CCTV should be used by parents to monitor activities of children-Official



The Director-General, Lagos State Office of Quality Assurance, Mrs. Ronke Soyombo, has advised parents to cut down on frivolities and invest in Closed Circuit Television and other preventive measures to protect their children from abuse.
She also urged women to shun negligent behaviours that could expose their children to physical and emotional harm.

Soyombo said this on Thursday in an interview with a Media outlet.
“Occasionally, it will not hurt for parents to cut down on aso-ebi (social dresses) and invest in CCTV. That can be linked to our phones so that even as career women, we can monitor our children and pay attention to what is going on in their lives.
 “There is no reason why a five-year-old should walk to school by him or herself. There are parents who don’t know their children’s’ favourite food or when their daughters start menstruating. Special-need children are even more vulnerable to abuse, especially those that cannot talk.  Parents should obtain reference for their drivers, nannies and other domestic staff,’’ she said.
The educationist also said that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode had directed her office to enforce the adoption of the Child Protection Policy of the state government, adding, “We are not saying that schools should adopt it the way it is. But it is mandatory for every school to adapt the policy to suit its local needs to protect our children from all kinds of abuse. There must be child protection officers in schools. ’’

She added that the state government had had to shut down some schools for safety and child protection issues.
Mr. Paul Kola explains how he got 50% of his revenue after investing it in this profitable platform
